Dischi Fantom is happy to announce its first release Transmissions, a 4-record anthology of Soundwalk Collective. With an essay by David Toop.
The box set gathers four previously unreleased studio compositions by the New York and Berlin-based group of artists-musicians: Ulysses Syndrome, Medea, Empty Quarter, and Bessarabia, and a booklet including Black-Winged Night, an essay by musician and writer David Toop and a conversation between Soundwalk Collective and Dischi Fantom founder, Massimo Torrigiani.
The four compositions – mastered by Stefan Betke and published in an edition of 300 copies – are the result of extensive journeys and field recordings in the Mediterranean basin, the Black Sea, the Rub’ al Khali Desert, and the region around Odessa, once known as Bessarabia.
An international genre-bending group of artists-musicians with studios in New York City and Berlin, the three members of Soundwalk Collective (Stephan Crasneanscki, Simone Merli, and Kamran Sadeghi) bound in Manhattan to produce concept albums, sound installations, and live performances. Often in collaboration with other artists, musicians, and writers.Selected tracks from Transmissions are being broadcasted internationally as part of Every Time a Ear Di Soun, the radio program of documenta14, curated by Adam Szymiczyk. The program includes a headphone installation in the Press and Information Centre in Kassel, designed by Aristide Antonas, and in the ASFA Library in Athens, and will be running through September 17th, 2017.
